Rush
By: Nyrae Dawn
Genre: M/M New Adult Romance
Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

For the love of the game.

Brandon Chase has always defined himself by one thing: football. Tough and athletic, he is a great college player who enjoys the hard hits and the sweaty grind of the gridiron. But when Brandon is injured, only one person can help him get back on track-a forbidden love he’s desperately tried to put behind him.

Alec Andrews has never quite forgiven Brandon for walking away when their friendship turned into something more. But he can’t deny help to one of his closest friends. As the two spend the long, hot summer working together, their old attraction comes flooding back.

Now as Alec thinks about coming out to his conservative family and Brandon considers revealing he’s a gay football player, the two men must be strong to fight for a love that could be the greatest rush of their lives.

Breakable
By: Tammara Webber
Genre: New Adult Romance
Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

He was lost and alone. Then he found her.
And the future seemed more fragile than ever.

As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise — until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed.

All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy…

As easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.

 

Randomness

I’m excited to announce that this year I took part in my very first event to fight against cancer. Cancer has affected me and my family since before I was even born. My grandmother survived cancer twice (two different kinds). However, I lost my grandfather (whom I was very close to) about 5 years ago, and just recently lost my fur-baby of 17 years to cancer (I had her for more than half my life). I had always wanted to participate in an event like this before but would always manage to miss it. It wasn’t until my friend mentioned that Relay For Life was coming up and that I should do it in honor of Snickers, that I actually started to plan for it. Well, if you remember my Ramblings of a Book Sniffer: Lull in Posts, then you know how my life got turned upside down real quick.

Some of you may remember Snickers, she was featured a couple of times on the site.

Here’s a picture of me at Relay for Life. I even got a t-shirt made and bought matching socks for the occasion. The event was a ton of fun and even though I only walked 3 miles, I helped our team raise money at our food booth. Oh and I also found out that I’m not as young as I used to be. I wound up doing a Zumba class and a Hula dancing class during the event… which resulted in me walking around like a 100 yr old woman today at work.

This weekend was also the 22nd annual art fair at Joshua Tree National Park. I stopped into work to just go over some last minute details with my boss which turned into the two of use walking around checking out the different stuff that the artists were selling. Which ultimately led to me buying this amazingly eery statue of a raven standing over a dead desert tortoise, shell and bones scattered around, with the words “Never More” painted on the base. Yup, after going back to it 3 times throughout the 30 minutes I was there, I went back and bought it. Now the killer raven sits on my end table judging me while I put off housework and read instead.

11 Thoughts on “Sunday Wrap-Up #31

  1. I really want to read Breakable but I’m worried I won’t like it because I have had a lot of bad luck with companion novels. Still! I am hopeful and looking forward to your review =)

    Emily @ Falling For YA

    • Oh I know. I sometimes have a hard time with novels that are a rewrite from another characters POV. However, I’ve enjoyed Webber’s books and I’m sure that I’ll fall in love with the story all over again.

  2. Awe Kristin I am so sorry for your losses. Cancer is never pretty, and it is so darn hard to lose those we hold dear. My heartfelt thoughts for you and yours. Take it easy and remember to pamper yourself a little.

  3. I enjoyed Between the Lines by Tammara Webber. Breakable looks just as good. I’ll have to add it to my TBR list. I want to read more of her stuff, and I don’t really know why I haven’t yet. Thanks for stopping by yesterday! Hope you have a great week!

    Sandy @ Somewhere Only We Know

  4. Very sorry for your losses. What a cutie Snickers was.

    I’m anxious to read Breakable and hope I love it as much as I loved Easy. I look forward to your review!

    Wonderful blog!

  5. Sadly I lost my grandmother to cancer also. It’s so hard to lose someone but I feel that cancer in particular makes it much more difficult.

    Love how you do your for review books! I may need to adopt that 😀

    Love the raven too!

  6. That’s fantastic that your were able to get involved in something that has impacted your life. As hard as it is to be affected by cancer in one way, giving back and helping the fight is something to be proud about.
    I’m so excited about Breakable. I loved Easy!
    Have a great week!
    Happy reading!

    My SS

  7. I love the raven and your socks!

    One of these days I will get around to reading Harper’s series. Stop laughing! I will! 😉

  8. I really want to read Breakable, I hope you enjoy your books. Sorry to hear about your fur-baby, I did a run for cancer once too, it felt great but I was pretty young and didn’t have the contacts to get many sponsers.
